HAMMOND | Region native Crystal Taliefero appears tonight with her boss/mentor Billy Joel on "The Tonight Show" starring Jimmy Fallon.

"I received the call and couldn't believe it," Taliefero said. "I always say that you never know what's coming next with Billy. You have to just keep focused and ready."

Taliefero, who grew up in Hammond and Gary, was in her studio prior to her band's Nashville show at Bridgestone Arena when she received the call about "The Tonight Show."

Taliefero has her hands full these days. She just released her first single "Mary" and created Rodidah Productions, an all-female music engineering team that specializes in helping aspiring artists.

"My career has been very exciting," Taliefero said. "I am truly blessed to be doing exactly what I love to do. It's only possible because of my wonderful and supportive family."

Taliefero is currently on tour with Billy Joel with shows this summer at Boston's Fenway Park, Chicago's Wrigley Field and New York's Madison Square Garden.

Also scheduled to appear on tonight's show is Chelsea Clinton.
